VLC for Android
VLC for Android is an impressive media player

VLC is a media player that has been available for Mac and PC for some time, as well as for iOS. While there has been a remote tool available for Android that can be used to control playback of the main application on another computer, but now there is a dedicated Android app that can be used to play local and streaming music and video on your phone or tablet.

Just as with the desktop version of the software, there is support for an impressive range of file formats and you can view videos complete with subtitles or alternative soundtracks. Auto-rotation ensures that the best use is made of available screen space depending on the orientation of your device, and gestures are available for controlling volume. Volume can also be controlled using the bundled widget.

It is important to note that this is beta software and the developers themselves point out that it is not stable and is only really suitable for power users and hackers. In reality, it is unlikely to cause any damage to your Android device, but don’t expect blistering performance or uninterrupted playback at this stage. This are shaping up well, but there is still some way to go before this is an app that is suitable for day to day use.

If you want to take a sneak peak at what to expect from future releases of the apps, the beta is a great way to keep in the loop. You might find that your hardware is not supported, and this is something that may or may not change as development continues. Despite the early stage of development, you should find that if the app is support by your device, it works pretty well, and as things are only going to improve, this bodes very well indeed.

Verdict:

This is obviously a very early demo of what’s to come, but it’s definitely an app to keep an eye on

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
